Back in September Architectural Digest dedicated a whole cover plus photo spread to Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent “settling in” to their pristine apartment, a penthouse at the Emery Roth-designed 39 Fifth Avenue in the heart of the Village. While the pair spent the better part of the piece gushing about how they’d finally found their dream home (“We couldn’t stop thinking about the apartment, believing we were meant to live there…we were able to create the home of our dreams,” Brent said to AD at one point), it looks like the family, which includes their young daughter Poppy, couldn’t quite get as comfy as they’d hoped, because they’ve just listed their spacious pad for $10.5 million.
As one would expect from two interior designers, the duplex has been beautifully updated. (Surely, what’s driving Berkus’ eight-figure price tag, way up from the $5 million he paid for the home just two years ago.) According to the listing, the unit has been renovated for entertaining on one level and large family quarters below, which include the home’s three bedrooms.
The sleeping quarters are spacious, and the listing touts a “dressing room larger than most bedrooms” in the master suite. The home also boasts 10.5-foot coffered ceilings, four fireplaces, a wrought iron staircase, sweeping city views, and plenty of other luxe details throughout.
A modern chef’s kitchen complements a large formal dining room that can be opened and closed to create a more intimate setting. The kitchen itself is actually quite a work of art, aptly described as a “space only found in old-world New York mansions.” A wall of windows and skylights within only add to the effect.
While Berkus and his brood have plans to move on, the upside is that you now have the chance to live out their interior dreams in this perfectly appointed space.
